The OVW Slamfest 2004 show (for charity) happened on February 7 to an almost sell-out crowd at Davis Arena in Louisvilly, KY. The show raised somewhere close to $3,000 for the "Crusade for Children" charity and featured Stevie Richards (a surprised fill-in for Kanyon) vs. Standing Thunder; Nova, Idol & Trudi vs. Tank Tolin, Chris Cage and Alexis Laree (with Trudi and Alexis dominating the match in spots); Billy Gunn vs. Dinsmore; and - the MATCH of the night - Magnus & Nikita vs. Johnny Jeter and Jim Cornette! Cornette even got off some wrestling moves before announcing afterwards that he figures the match will be his last, as he felt like collasping after it was all said and done.
The whole show was filmed, so hopefully a video will eventually be available from the OVW website.
The television show on Saturday night also announced that the first Kentucky Kingdom/Six Flags show for OVW will be happening on March 6 and feature a retirement ceremony for Jimmy Valiant, along with a "RAW vs. SMACKDOWN" match between Randy Orton and John Cena.
